...ggesting that the jabbing actions were intended to immobilize
bushbabies, rather than rouse them from their cavities (bushbabies move quickly and might otherwise easily evade chimpanzees once roused). Two notable aspects of the behavior observed in the Fongoli group were that on the one hand, it is rare for ...

the sentinel bacteria as part of a biosensor design strategy. Nancy Love (www.cee.vt.edu/people/love.html) began her work with microbes by finding organisms that could be used to digest waste in wastewater treatment plants. When she noticed that...
Breakthrough method in nanoparticle synthesis paves the way for new pharmaceutical and biomedical applications
...g’s group at IBN has developed novel approaches to immobilize
these catalysts on nanoporous materials synthesized by its wet-chemical technique. This renders the catalysts in a solid form, enabling them to be easily recovered and reused through simple filtering or centrifuging processes. This allows for the mor...
